    I just took a first swing at the potential cover for my WIP. Title of book and series very much a WIP too.

    The story follows a family, the mother of whom belongs to an ancient race and has unnaturally long life. This race draws a life force that emanates from planets and initially from the planet's two suns. The mother has a pet fox with a similar lifespan, pictured below.

    Can you guys let me know if you this is detailed enough / would be intrigued by this at all in store or online? I'm predominantly a web designer in my day job so not sure if I'm going too minimal or bland.

    The font should reference the heavy influence nature has on the story. There should be a touch of mystery and, to an extent, peacefulness (since this first book is mostly set at home). Do you guys think that going too peaceful makes it lack intrigue?

    Lastly, Does this look remotely like a fantasy book to you?

    Minimal is good. and about the peacefulness...well it's fuel for a mystery/horror tale. FarAway, a kingdom far away and my first attempt at a series, is a peaceful kingdom where everything is perfect, I mean everything, it's like living in a dream...until you are invited to a tea party or another peaceful and cheerful celebration.

    Why Moons by the way? see? you've said so little about your story and you already got one hooked. Lots of questions about this long living mom

    Appreciate it. I’ll let you know more when I have some writing not too lame to show!

    Did you clock the fox in the corner at all or too subtle?
